I like some veg, but not all of them. Like I can't really stand carrots unless it's been cooked in soup to the point where its extremely soft and unnoticeable. I freakin' love asparagus, broccoli, string beans, bok choy, cabbage,spinach, lettuce and other vegetables as well.
I have love hate relationships with a lot of veges too, like onion lol. Can't eat it if it's cut in large pieces but love when its cut into really small cubes that I can add to soup and stuff.

Nope being a vegetarian isn't healthier. You see studies that show that vegetarians live longer and are healthier, but that isn't because they don't eat meat, it is because they follow a diet and watch what they eat. The human body is pretty great at digesting and getting the nutrients out of all kinds of food (despite what people that make money selling "health food" have made many in the public believe for years now), but if you take in more calories than you burn, you will get fat. Many people also take in too much sodium and not enough of certain nutrients found in vegetables and fruits. Vegetarians typically don't run into this issue as often.

i think vegetarians are a thing. not nearly as significant as it's popularity suggests, but honest and sure none the less. i have seen babies who, eventhough encouraged to eat meat, gag at the prospect of doing so.
there is a popular thought that humans weren't intended as carnivores; that the animal flesh we consume rots and festers within us before it is adequately digested. that thinking seems fishy to me. im sure there are some that do not process protein as well as others, i'll bet that isnt exactly true of everyone though.

Logically I have to concede that vegetarianism is both more healthy for the human body and better for the environment and to top it off frees up more food for the rest of the human race.
All that being said I like meat and have no real intention of becoming a vegetarian, but I would be willing to entertain the idea of eating less meat.
